    If you do, get it off of Amazon. It's almost half price.

    sorry about the last post. Can't re-size my photo of the green interior.

    Can anyone detail the type of adhesive used to re-secure the interior vinyl door trim to the door panel? I know someone said two part epoxy but will rubber cement work? Hot melt may melt the vinyl, don't you think?

    Repairing the section of the door by the window control that pulls away.

    Rubber cement will not hold, I used Gel CA on my door panels where the vinyl was loose. I also used quick set JB weld around the door lights. Used small spring clamps, c clamps and wood to spread the pressure where ness. Only did a couple months ago, but seems to be holding well.

    Re: eldorado interior panels

    This is a question for Lifer (or anyone who wants to chime in) about Dynamatting. I've done my doors and agree it's just great. I want to do my trunk when the weather gets warmer, but how do you handle the surface between the back seat and the trunk? In my 91 Eldo, there's sort of an open frame between the back seat and the trunk interior back trim piece. I sandwiched a a big sheet of jute in there the last time I had the seat back out, but not sure how I would handle the Dyanmat there.

    What you're talking about is called a bulkhead. You apply the Dynamat just the same as you would on any other surface/panel.

    Re: eldorado interior panels

    I am not sure about the bulkhead on the '91, but on the 8th generation the panel behind the rear seat is an electric panel full of fuses and relays. The seat back is deep foam and should insulate fairly well. Along the sides there is room for Dynamat.

    Re: eldorado interior panels

    I started the repair of the interior panels. So far so good.
    Lifer, thanks for the steps to remove everything. It was fairly simple to take everything out. The interior panel has 6 clips and was tough to remove. One of the posts which hold the clips broke so I had to find some hard plastic and make a piece to repair the hole. Once you get the first one out near the door, you really need to work the clips out from the metal panel instead of having them rip out of the panel. As for the Dynamatting, I was going to ask the same question about the panel behind the seat. Looks like the brains of the car are here and wont be dynamtting this. I'll post some pics of the repair. For the adhesive, I Found a 2 part 5 minute expoxy called PermaPoxy by Permatex. Specificallly for gluing vinyl and softplastics. Found a youtube video recommending it and seems to be holding well. Picked up at my local autoparts store.

    I had to replace the rear speakers. I bought Bose with the internal amp. Expensive, but the sound is acceptable.

    Re: eldorado interior panels

    Thanks for the comments -- my question is because the bulkhead in a 91 as I tried to describe is more of an open frame, so if you Dyanat one side, you'd end up with big areas of exposed adhesive. That's why I guess the best idea is to just do both sides. With electronic boxes as jammgm decribed, I've had success in door panels just cutting out rectangular holes to accommodate them.

    You don't Dynamat over the holes, just the metal. The Dynamat stops the panels it's adhered to from vibrating. It doesn't do much of anything just placed over a hole.
